Subject description: Mitchell Waite's first ever book available for free download
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

In 1975 ago I bought a book called 'Projects in Sight, Sound & Sensation'. It was full of wonderful and intriguing ideas, and I build more than half of them.

The Elektor Oscillographics thread produced references to anther well known oscilloscope graphics design - and I recognized the author.

I found the book a few weeks ago, and found, as I remembered, a much more complete and complex oscilloscope graphics design, called "Sytheshape". I looked up the author, with a view to asking permission to PDF the design for the forum. I then got a surprise: it was the same Mitchell Waite who wrote so many good books on computing, and finally founded The Waite Group - one of the most innovative computer/technical publishers ever.

I got to reading his autobiography, (many good lessons for us all), and upon going to his personal page to see about emailing him, I found he had pre-empted me - the whole book is available as a PDF.

http://www.mitchwaite.com/

Use the 'personal' button at the top of the page. Then download from there. Having PDF should make PCB's easier too. By the way - it's a 78 Meg dowload, no skimping on the scan quality here.

Thanks very much, Mitch!

Edit: minor typos.

Hi
Would somebody share again this file ? I would be interested, but if the link is still active, it seems it's no more possible to download this book..
Any help greatly appreciated !
Best
J.
